I sold some ampullaria plants in June (sales thread here) and kept some as they are without pitchers.

After 3 months, they are finally established and here are some of the different forms. :)/>

I don't know about you all but my peeve about collecting ampullaria is that there is no end to how varied they are. There is the all green, the all red, the all dark red, the red peristome (lip) with green body, the green lip with red body...and I have not started on the speckles yet. Oh, oh...there's also variation as to how round the lip is, or how round the whole pitcher is. :hysterical:/>

The next form is what is "trending" a.k.a the current most popular (and most growers would like to buy). Mine is from a VERY VERY wonderful, kind and generous person who is not on this platform (I kinda owe him my life). p.s. The photos don't really do it service but I have to make do with the mobile camera. If you are interested, do Google for N. ampullaria "Black Miracle". The plant originates from Tropicpitchers.com.
